5 starbucks drinks that a coffee lover cannot live without.

Water is pretty overrated anyway, am I right?

Some days, you just need some good coffee. Whether you are trying to get through a midday lull at the office or want a fun pick me up on your Saturday out- you never want to pay money for a bad cup of coffee! So, the big question is "what do I order, and where do I order?" Now while I love supporting local and small business coffee shops, the right ones can be hard to find when you are new to an area, are unsure of what you want, or are in a hurry and need a drive through. With that being said, I always fall back on my favorite Starbucks beverages when I am in a crunch or feeling indecisive! Not sure of what to order next time you are going to the drive through? Catch some great ideas below!

5 starbucks drinks that a coffee lover cannot live without.

1. Sweet Vanilla Cream Cold Brew

There's nothing worse than the energy slump that happens between two and four in the afternoon on a work day. I fully recommend this caffeinated piece of heaven because it has plenty of caffeine to get you through the work day, plus a kick of sweet vanilla to remind you to smile and be social when you would rather hide under your desk and nap.

2. The Pink Drink

Okay, Okay I know this one is not coffee, but how in the WORLD did I not know about this iced delight until a month ago?? I am not ashamed to admit that I bought this far too often than a normal person would when I found out this actually existed. Plus, if you are looking for a low calorie goodie to get you through, the Pink Drink is a fantastic guilt free go-to. With a kick of strawberry goodness and coconut milk, you'll be ready to roll the windows down and waltz right into summer.

3. Hot Chai

Honestly, who doesn't appreciate a good chai and curling up with a book on a rainy day? The Chai Tea hot is definitely a go to of mine when I am looking for a yummy drink in the winter, and a must have when iced in the summer! It's a perfect compilation of cinnamon goodness, plus, throw in a shot of espresso, and you get a delightful drink with a kick!

4. Vanilla Latte

When you just need a boost of energy and want to avoid the calories, a good ol' ice coffee does the trick! If you want it slightly sweet but want to avoid heavy sugars and creams, any shot of their sugar free syrups are a great option. I personally love anything vanilla and typically add a shot of vanilla, or sugar free vanilla in mine.

5. Caramel Brulee Latte

Okay so this one is only in season for Christmas, but I could not leave it out! If there is a downfall to my self control when it comes to holiday goodies this is it. It's sweet caramel and coziness will make you want to snuggle under a blanket on a rainy winter day and throw on your favorite T.V show. It may be June right now, but you will be thanking me in six months when you try this in December. Your welcome.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.
